Sample response

Dear Jamie,

I am delighted to hear that you are visiting my country in a couple of months. I still remember our meeting in Tokyo last year. You had then helped me out of a difficult situation even though we hadn’t met before. Since then we haven’t had an opportunity to meet each other.

I am glad that I am finally getting an opportunity to return the favour. While you are in India, you can stay with my family. We have a spacious home in Bangalore. We have also got a spare bedroom for guests. Staying in a hotel in Bangalore is rather expensive. That is not necessary either because my home is only a few kilometers away from the hall where you will be attending the conference. During your stay in Bangalore, we can visit important landmarks in the city. Also, if time permits we can visit Mysore which has some amazing palaces and temples. You will also be able to enjoy South Indian foods during this trip. Please let me know if you have any other plans.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards
